Meet Our Owner

Angela

 

My name is Angela Riley, I have a BA. in Educational Studies with a CDA in Early Childhood, and will have my M. Ed.. in Special Education this year. I have been working with kids and in educational settings for over 20 years. I opened Head Heart Hands Preschool with the purpose of ensuring there were quality inclusive programs for early childhood. I am an advocate for inclusion and feel very strongly about the importance of early childhood education and ensure children have a strong educational foundation which begins at birth. It is very important to me that each child feels safe, loved, and supported. I am an active owner in the preschool in Flagstaff, even though I have relocated to Phoenix to open my second site. My passion is working with children to have a successful and meaningful educational experience.

My husband Steve and I have been married for 10 years and have focused on working together to provide a successful early learning environment. We have two adult children and two wonderful siberian huskies. We currently reside in Waddell, AZ, and while working on opening our second site, I am currently working as a special education teacher in a self-contained Autism inclusion classroom.

What People Are Saying

They say first impressions are everything. Well in this case that is still true. When we first met to check out the facility to see if it would fit our needs, my first impression was that it was very clean and very child friendly. Over time, we have found that they are open when others are closed. For a working family that means a lot. When they do need to close, they communicate well in advance. This is important because finding childcare last minute is near impossible. My family and I are very thankful that we found Head Heart Hands and can't imagine having anyone else watch and teach our little one.
I’d like to share our experience with Head Heart Hands preschool. Nearly two years ago, we enrolled our 4 year old son at the school. His younger sister has since joined him attending and I really feel the teachers know the kids personally! It’s evident in the daily notifier emails when they comment about my son’s good appetite at lunch or share a photo of my daughter smiling on the playground. It’s also nice they’ve had the main teacher for nearly 2 years and there are other teachers who have been there just the same amount of time. I have to praise the school for remaining open in the midst of Covid-19 and implementing important safety measures. As a healthcare worker, I have immense gratitude the school was and is dedicated to remaining safely open. One more thing I love about the school is how open they are. I’m always able to check on kids from work or if I email with a question, I’ll get a call back the same day. I highly recommend Head Heart Hands Preschool if you’re looking for great childcare. P.S. The school arranges for Class Photos in the fall and it will be the best thing of your year. Prepare your heart!

Ever since both my grandchildren have been attending, I have been impressed with HHH. My grandson is on the autism spectrum, and the ladies there have been wonderful with him. He receives a lot of one on one attention, and they all have taught him so much in this last year. Christine, the director, is always prompt in communicating whatever we need to know, and her caring and wisdom are so appreciated. They are strict about their rules, but they have to be. Since they have been operating during Covid 19, they have not let up on any of the precautionary measures they have undertaken in their collaboration with the health dept. I would recommend Head Heart and Hands for their professionalism, caring and talent.
